"An Architect's Dream" as written by and Kate Bush....
Watching the painter painting
And all the time, the light is changing
And he keeps painting
That bit there, it was an accident
But he's so pleased
It's the best mistake, he could make
And it's my favorite piece
It's just great

The flick of a wrist
Twisting down to the hips
So the lovers begin, with a kiss
In a tryst
It's just a smudge
But what it becomes
In his hands
Curving and sweeping
Rising and reaching
I could feel what he was feeling
Lines like these have got to be
An architect's dream

It's always the same
Whenever he works on a pavement
It starts to rain
And all the time
The light is changing

    General CommentThis is my favorite song on Aerial. It's the lynchpin of the whole album, which to me, is about abandoning the outside world and find yourself in your personal life, your family, and devotion to crafting your art.
